Edinburgh Georgian square redevelopment wins praise

The £1m refurbishment of the southern side of a Georgian square in Edinburgh has been praised by local heritage bosses, as it stakes a claim to offer modern business facilities for the city.

Comprising six A-listed townhouses, major works have taken place over the past 18 months. Once the home of The National Trust of Scotland, the site had been derelict since the body moved out in 2010.

The works saw the development, part of the Charlotte Square Collection, reshaped into four properties, including an  office fit out  office fit out.

The creation of a newly configured building, across four office floors, is hoped to attract some of the biggest financial services firms in the city.

A modern facility it may be, but the redevelopment has been applauded by Edinburgh World Heritage (EWHT). Its director, Adam Wilkinson, said:

“The restoration and sensitive adaptation of these wonderful buildings really sets the standard for our city.”

Wilkinson went on to explain that The Charlotte Square Collection is fundamental to the city’s World Heritage Status. The property was a wonderful showcase for the period of Scottish Enlightenment, he continued.

As well as retaining the period features, an underground parking facility has also been provided and the square has seen the properties linked through a courtyard garden, which has been constructed over the existing car parking space on the site.

The original 19 buildings were designed in 1820 by Robert Adam. Now a fully managed estate, Wilkinson concluded they the square is amongst the most handsome in the continent.
